“Well, if you’re still alive after dying, you’re obedient, Doctor.”      
 
~Katherine,  Suddenly Last Summer, by Tennessee Williams

where
           did
she think she was
going

zombie
               ish
in fact
substantially
materially

easily led
easily turned
easily shied

as only the
waking walking
dead
          can
be be
          cause
nothing
               matters
and nothing
                       nothing
                                      no
nothing is
real
        any
more

so
     Get up!
you nameless maunderers
     Get up!
you derelict strays

find a new
                    voice
to follow

if no
if not
          well
then
          Die!

you lovelies

have done and
just
       Die!
           
already

besides
what else is there to do?
